Digital persuasion: a cultural and human perspective

We live in a society where we try to equate science, mathematics, or some sort of algorithm to everything we do; especially in the digital environment. This talk will nudge us to take a step back, slow down, and reengage with the human element of everything we design or develop. We’ll investigate some trends in the digital environment from user and cultural psychology perspectives.

Finding Your Mojo

More and more recently I’ve seen creative people struggling with motivation feeling like they’re stuck in a rut. It’s easy to lose perspective and become stagnant but the important thing is to spot the signs and make positive changes. In this talk I aim to uncover what your mojo is, how to get it back and how to keep it!
